The title of this book alone was enough to get me to pick it up. As a picture book, it's a fairly simple read, although I think it's mainly aimed at kids in the 4 or 5 year old range and up. They're the ones who will get the humor the best.
Why? Well, this book is a collection of twisted fairy tales. We've got "Chicken Licken," who is convinced the sky is falling - only it's not the sky. We learn what was really happening behind the scenes with the "Princess and the Pea" and how the prince overcame it. "Little Red Running Shorts" tells an interesting story about the importance of running. "The Tortoise and the Hair" introduces us to the stupidest contest of all time. Plus our narrator Jack gets into more trouble with his Giant, the Little Red Hen wanders through the book, and the title story creates quite a stink.
All told, there are roughly 10 stories here ranging from one page to eight pages. Overall, the book is around 50 pages. There is more text than your average picture book as well, so this one will take a little while to read. But the giggles and laughs at the twists in the story will more than make up for it.
So if your child is moving beyond simple picture books, this is one to get. You'll find both of you laughing the entire way through.
